Avoiding A Holiday Relapse To Smoking
Jonathan Foulds, PhD posted:
While many smokers are planning to quit after the holidays, those recent ex-smokers should be aware that the holiday season presents its own set of relapse risks:
1. Holiday parties...with alcohol/groups of smokers huddled outside
2. The stress of family get-togethers, tight budgets etc.
3. Feeling that you deserve some reward after all the hard work
So how can you increase your chances of keeping your quit going strong?
- remind yourself of all the good reasons you decided to quit
- remember all the hard work it has taken to get this far
- give yourself a pat on the back and some other treat for your success
- just before you go to holiday events, remind yourself to be careful with alcohol, and being around other smokers and that its a success if you come back from the party still a non-smoker.
For some more detailed discussion of ways to avoid relapse, check out these links .
